oakland. also towards castro valley and hayward. we started to see the rain bands move onshore just after about 9:45 in the morning. for the evening commute some scattered showers, certainly notable. we have the rain at the golden gate bridge at this hour. very slippery when wet. temperatures very mild. it feels so subtropical outside. the winds increasing out of the south a 15, going up to 20 miles per hour. on the weekend we have a wind advisory that goes into effect with wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour. now a flash flood watch in effect for it the "valley fire" zone. now that burned-out area in middleton. we'll see some flooding in that particular area and the possibility of mud slides. this is the core of the center of the area of low pressure. this is the frontal boundary area and it's tapping into that atmospheric river that zooms all the way back towards the hawaiian islands. futurecast. this is high noon saturday, scattered showers around the bay area. you start to see, what's going on? here's your lunchtime.
the showers begin to really gather in earnest. the frontal boundary causes heavy downpours. the threat of a thunderstorm, as well. a little bit of lull in the evening hours, more rain showers heavy on sunday afternoon. a bit of a break by monday. rainfall totals will stack up to easily 3" in many areas, 4" in the highest elevations. 6" at the coast. so we have wind and rain over the weekend. as far as the temperatures, everybody is going to be pretty much in the 60s to 70 degrees today. the wind will be a problem for all areas including the napa valley marathon. you will have some downed trees and power lines. and you'll have ponding on the roadways. so make it a good afternoon indoors tomorrow. >> just watch movies. >> all right. >> channel 5. >> yeah. >> and channel 5. well, with more coyote sightings, dog owners are nervous about the danger. coming up, our pet expert dr. jill chase joins us to talk about protecting your animals. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
question. we do live in an environment where coyotes are part of that and so if you're going to be traveling or taking your pet into the presidio, stern grove, or golden gate park, make sure they are on a leash. you don't want that situation where they see the coyote and then think they may want to encounter it which is not going to be good. so -- keep them on a leash. somebody had a great idea about carrying an umbrella and opening up it. and -- getting feedback. scare it away. flash flights. anything to make yourself be big enough that the coyote doesn't want to tangle with you. >> are there bad times to go on a walk at night, daytime, either one? >> well, so it's true that they don't really come out during the day although there have been coyotes sightings during the day. they are more of a dusk, evening type of predator. so that's probably the time you should be hyperalert but i think at this point we need to be alert all the time.
>> it's raining now. and is it okay to take a dog out in the rain. of course! [ laughter ] >> so because i think if you take -- if i go out in the rain naked, which i don't, but if i were to, that it would be bad for you because they get a cold. you don't worry about that with dogs. two questions. can you take the dog out for the walk in the rain, you can. you see people with raincoats and that's fine, of course. but what you don't want to do is expose them to the elements. so of course leaving them out in the snow and leaving them out in the rain where they could get cold especially if the weather temperature cold, like right now we are having warm rain. >> dry them off after the walk. >> dry them off. >> if you have questions for dr. jill just email email@example.com or on our facebook page, and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. sit, stay, good advice for michelle. >> thank you. it is lunchtime and today fresh grocer tony tantillo shows us a fresh ingredient you can use year round. >> reporter: well, today's tip of the day is going to be cucumbers. i do tips on them all the time in summer because they're cool,
crisp and locally grown just about anywhere. they are in the market at great prices. these cucumbers are being imported but they are great for this time of year. and the cool crispiness always tastes great no matter the time of year. let's talk about selection and storage. when you buy them, green very important all the way around. a dark deep green. skin free from any shriveling whatsoever and they have to be heavy for their size and the straighter the better. when you bring them home, store them in the refrigerator right away. shelf life is short so buy them and enjoy them within a few days. hot or cold, it's great in a salad, with tomatoes, red onions, olive oil and balsamic. and i'm tony tantillo, your fresh grocer. and always remember to eat fresh and stay healthy. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
